Just last month, Yamaha announced a pair of new AVENTAGE receivers. Now, they’re itching to add to the line once again. The company just introduced the 9.2-channel RX-A3030 and RX-A2030, as well as the 7.2-channel RX-A1030.
First up is the RX-A3030, which allows the user to expand up to 11.2 channels via the included CINEMA DSP HD3 engine. Other features on this top-of-the-line model include options for a second zone, an ESS Ultra DAC, and YPAO auto room calibration. Boasting up to 165 watts per channel (into 8 ohms), this model also packs in Ultra HD (4K) pass-through and upscaling, wireless streaming via Apple AirPlay, MHL support, eight HDMI inputs and two outputs with 3D and Audio Return Channel.
The RX-A2030, is very similar, since it’s also designed for 9.2-channel systems. However, this one doesn’t offer the 11.2 support and drops down to a max of 155 watts per channel.
Last in the new lineup is the 7.2-channel RX-A1030. With up to 120 watts per channel, this model has support for a second zone, as well as MHL and AirPlay. It also has Ultra HD (4K) pass-through and upscaling, YPAO R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) sound optimization, eight HDMI inputs and two outputs with 3D and Audio Return Channel.
Yamaha will start shipping the RX-A1030, the RX-A2030 and the RX-A3030 this June. The company has priced this new collection at $1,199.95, $1,699.95 and $2,199.95, respectively.
